Elizabeth (Edwards) Taylor

Mrs. Andrew Taylor

Elizabeth Edwards was born in Wales, September 18, 1841, and died at the home of her daughter at Miami, Florida, aged 79 years, 2 months and 13 days.

She came with her parents to America and settled in Pennsylvania at eight years of age. She was married to Andrew Taylor April 21, 1860. They came to Nebraska in 1867 and settled on a homestead just over the line in Nemaha county, Kansas, and endured all the privations of pioneer life.  She was the mother of ten children, eight of whom are living, Mrs. Robena Spates, of San Francisco, California; Mrs. Mary Nelson, of West Plain, Mo; Letita Hutton, of Miami, Florida; John Taylor, of Seattle, Wash.; Robert Taylor, of Cuba, Kans.; Mrs. Agnes Geer, of York; Mrs. Belle Saling, of Miami, Florida; and Mrs. Ina Hunzeker, of York.  There are twenty-seven grandchildren and eighteen great grandchildren.

Her husband died ten years ago last March.   Since that time she has made her home with her children and was with a daughter in Miami, Florida, when the Death Angel summoned her to come up higher.

She was a woman of many sterling qualities.  She gave her heart to the Lord when a young woman and lived a consistent christian life.  While living on the homestead she and her husband and children attended the Scotch Valley church.  She was an excellent mother and her children rise up and call her blessed.

The funeral services were held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Taylor in this city Sunday afternoon, December 5, at two o'clock, and interment made in the Pawnee City cemetery.   Rev. Paul C. Payne had charge of the service and was assisted by Rev. T. K. Allen.
